Kyle Kashuv, a Second Amendment-supporting student at the Parkland, Fla ., high school that was the site of the shooting carnage last month, on Sunday called for a debate with a classmate who helped organize the pro-gun control March for Our Lives, based on a quotation made to Fox News.
The organizer, Cameron Kasky, was responding to a claim in a recent National Rifle Association( NRA) video, that “no one would know[ Parkland students’] names” had their classmates not died.
“I think that’s the most pathetic thing I’ve watched out of this … And that’s the NRA — you’ll notification, they can’t attack our debate, so they’re attacking us personally. The fact that they’re telling all we want out of “its all for” people to know our names. They have no idea how much each of us would dedicate for it to be February 13 th again, ” Kasky told “Fox News Sunday, “ referencing the day before the massacre.
“Happy to debate you live tomorrow so we can dissect each other’s debates. Interested? No personal insults allowed here, ” Kashuv tweeted to Kasky.
Kasky responded that he’d be interested in organizing a debate “in the near future.”
The “March for Our Lives” events on Saturday drew massive crowd in cities across the country. In Washington , D.C ., New York City, Denver, Los Angeles and other cities, demonstrators hear from student survivors of last month’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The gunman killed 17 people and wounded 17 more.
Speaking to Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Kasky said that the debate from the NRA and Kashuv, that those supporting the March for Our Lives motion “truly don’t know what they’re marching for, ” is a fallacy.
“We are not just marching to end school violence. We are marching to end violence all over the country, because that’s where it happens, ” Kasky told, reaffirming that “we are not trying to take everybody’s handguns away.”
Kasky’s call for “common sense” regulations include issuing mental health checks and having firearm owneds be age 21 and older. He told assault weapons should be completely banned, but smaller firearms used for protection could be sold under better regulations.
Kashuv, who wasn’t invited to speak at the main demo in Washington on Saturday, told Fox News’ Leland Vittert on “America’s News H”Q that Trump “does care about stopping school violence, ” despite what his opponent claims.
